Heather comments on the wild double standards that Aviva, Sonja, and Ramona are living by.

Here we are sitting pretty on this stage -- divided by two couches -- and it's funny for me to watch Andy introduce us all. I really felt like, "Ya dat's right, we're New York City baby!" And I think the taglines this season were in keeping with the show. It's silly. And no matter what, people will either love your silly or hate it. In the beginning, I actually hated all of the taglines too (except for mine of course), but I came around because at the end of the day, they’re funny!

I mean can you believe "The Gordon's Fishermam," who was Carole's blind date, and the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" man (Fabio), were both on RHONY? We have fake fishermen, fantasy romance novel hunks, fake engagements, a promise not promised, and the baptism of a new girl -- who Aviva calls a rookie, nice. (What makes her an expert on reality personalities anyway?)

There's a lot I don't understand, but one thing I can tell you is that Aviva Drescher has more double standards than prosthetics. And what's shocking, she has no remorse at all. On the couch, as Kristen recaps the moment where Aviva so motherly drops the F-bomb, I notice one thing -- Aviva isn’t even listening. She is sitting there thinking about what to say. It's a game of chess to her. So here's her next move: Kristen is a rookie, and if she was as seasoned as Aviva, she would know that, "We normally don’t have confrontations when children are in scene." No. Checkmate there, Aviva. She fails to recognize she's the one who was out-of-line. Where does she come up with this sh--?

Oh no, wait! Et tou Singer? Liquid on liquid? It was a "hard molded plastic glass." How else do you say it? Among a slash and another double standard (grabbing someone's arm or throwing a hard plastic object), we have a revelation -- Ramona forgives. However, that doesn't mean she should expect others to forgive as easily. . .
